WHY HE'S MR. BROADWAY: Just the other day, he began previews as one of "the bad guys" in the much-anticipated revival of Annie. And he has a career on the Broadway stage that spans nearly 20 years. He got his start when he joined the cast of The Who's Tommy, and went on to originate roles in the Tony-winning Best Musicals Titanic and Hairspray. In addition to his work on television - including THREE different roles over 10 years in Law and Order: SVU- and film, he's been seen off-Broadway in Lone Star Love and a stint in Broadway's Mamma Mia! But for now, he's terrorizing "Little Gitls" on his way to "Easy Street" with Miss Hannigan and Lily St. Regis. With that kind of evil to play at, it's no wonder Clarke Thorell is Mr. Broadway!
